Box Swivels or MB Crunch Proof in marshy condition? 🤔 I remember reading a old post on here saying Box Swivels don't clog like MB crunch Proof do.

I also remember reading that Charles Dobbins was the true pioneer of cloggless Swivels back in the day, he just never could go full scale because they were made by hand each one in his shop.

Thoughts

They all clog in the right long grass the box swivels are harder to clean. IMO


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I use box swivels on all my fox traps and MB Crunch Proofs on all my coyote/bobcat traps only because the Crunch Proofs are heavier. The slight taper and rounded corners of the Crunch Proofs might make them slightly less likely to clog but I don't think there's a big difference.

Like Law Dog said, they'll both clog in long grass.


Eh...wot?
